The other night I talked with a friend who lives near the coast and as she was rattling off tales of frolicking on the beach that weekend, I was mulling over the 200 brocoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts and cabbage we planted that same day.
It was hot, muggy, hard, and dirty work. And even though my back was stuck in the half bent position and killing me, I couldn’t have been happier.
When I mentioned the brocoli to my friend, she immediately made a mental comparison and said…..”you lose!”.
In her eyes, her beach day had kicked my garden afternoon right in the ass.
I couldn’t help but chuckle over the lifestyle difference. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that I won. That doesn’t mean she lost. But we won for sure.
The opportunity to grow your own produce is a win every time.
Everyone of us could benefit from little more time with our hands in the soil.
Go get dirty!
